Re: Finally lower my 03.

Re: Finally lower my 03.

yeah i know, i dont have any good pictures from before it was lowered to show the difference, and its only an inch and a half drop. but in person its you can tell, and it drives better. i lowered it with tanabe springs.
and as far as the grill, ever since i got it i've been debating with myself if i should paint it.

maybe this pic will show it better.

Re: Finally lower my 03.

Might be the stock rims but the gap looks the same as mines(Stock), but from the before/after you can tell a difference. Looks good tho
